Bangladesh minced by India

We like to at least pretend that we're even-minded here at King Cricket, so this means that we have to write something when Bangladesh get thrashed as well as when they pull off an unexpected win.

Bangladesh were thrashed-and-then-some by India last week. Sourav Ganguly was the only Indian batsman to be dismissed for less than a hundred as India scored 610-3. In reply, Bangladesh were skittled for 118 with Zaheer Khan continuing his renaissance with 5-34.

Having followed-on, Bangladesh fared slightly better in their second innings, being dismissed for 253. Mohammad Ashraful hit 67 off 41 balls, but Mashrafe Mortaza did slightly better batting at eight. He hit 70.

So Bangladesh lost by an innings and 239, but most annoyingly of all, Saqibul Hasan's name started appearing as Shakib al Hasan. We predicted something along these lines when we first wrote about him. You know what this makes us? It makes us wrong. You know how that makes us feel? That's right: The same as normal.

When Saqibul / Shakib bats, he does a thing. He stretches his left arm straight up to the sky, brings it down, and then adjusts his helmet grill. He seems to do it approximately 4 times a minute. Not that I have been watching him obsessively or anything.

He's summoning "The Power".

He uses it to keep his helmet straight.
